    i have this picture i really like of my gf playing guitar and i really need some help making it really nice classic and sepia looking but with a nice effect or something.

    i just have no skills to use PS whatsoever plus my computer is super old and would crash if i even uploaded it.

    i would really appreciate some help in this department. thanks

    heres the picture (i linked it cause its quite big)

    thats cool with the subtle pink. i was looking more for a rustic kind of look though... maybe a bit grainy, but artistic,,,, if you know what i mean.

    great one though, definitely saved

    drop saturation
    apply sepi filter
    up the contrast/brightness
    fiddle with curves until I found them until I liked them
    overlay layer blur to soften then erase areas that you want sharper
    fiddle with lighting on her face

    some other stuff I'm sure I'm forgetting it just comes second nature I've done these sooo many times :o

    Won't be able to touch it until Monday if you wanted changes, but I thought it came out ok.
